I was in Wendover a couple years ago....it's not real easy to get out of the town. There weren't any car rental places then, and I doubt there are now. The casinos were basically the thing. There's a movie theatre, a golf course and a couple tours you can do (atv, salt flats tour) but you're kind of stuck there.

Linco71 - you sound like it wasn't the most fun place to be "stuck". I love Vegas and one of the things I like is being able to walk around and see things without having to gamble every minute - knowing this, do you think Wendover would be fun or is it just gambling?

I took one of those plane junkets last summer. As you walk in the airport there was a house phone that would connect you to a local car rental agency. I can't remember the name of the place, nor do I know if they are still in business.

@gramsclp - really the casinos sort of are the town - there's not much else to see/do. I think we were there for 3 nights and I really feel like we did EVERYTHING. Especially if you're not a gambler (which I'm not), you may feel stuck. I enjoyed it, but having been there once, I can't really think of a reason to go back.

thanks - I had been thinking of here, Atlantic City or Vegas for a girls trip and sounds like Vegas it is. I just cannot afford to gamble for 3 or 4 days straight and like the option of doing many other things, including just walking and sightseeing as it is cheap - ha!!

Hiya,

I can confirm that there is next to NOTHING to do except gamble in West Wendover. :)

Days inn is no longer there and the car rental at the days inn is no longer. I think it is now the Best Western and I called and they don't have a car rental.
